School Description

Cardiff Steiner School is a co-educational independent day school situated in Llandaff North, on the outskirts of Cardiff. The school opened as a primary school in August 2012 for pupils aged from 3 to 11 years. In 2014, the school extended the age range to enable pupils to continue their Steiner education through to age 14 years. The school is a member of the Steiner Waldorf Schools’ Fellowship and follows the group’s worldwide curriculum. It aims to take account of the academic, physical, emotional, cognitive, social and spiritual development of the whole child. Pupils start formal learning at age 6. There are 66 pupils on roll. These include 30 pupils in the kindergarten aged from 3 to 6 years and 36 pupils in the lower school from rising age 7 to 14 years. There is little difference in the number of boys and girls although the balance varies in class groups across the school. Most pupils live in Cardiff and the surrounding area. Many of the older pupils attended the kindergarten class and have re-joined the school since it opened in 2014, following a period of education elsewhere. A few of these pupils had been home-schooled. About 12.5% of pupils come from minority ethnic groups. A very few pupils speak English as an additional language and no pupil speaks Welsh as a first language at home. The school identifies 15% of pupils as having additional learning needs. None has a statement of special educational needs. The school’s leadership and management are shared between three groups, each of which has a specific area of responsibility. These groups are a board of trustees, a school management group and the college of teachers. The school is a charitable company limited by guarantee.
